What pretty rumors you have…

Hot off the Warseer/BoLS presses we got Space Wolf  rumors. I will use the creepy beauty of mimes to express my feelings about these rumors. Space Wolves Rumors begin……………………………………….NOW! -If drop pods are taken, the whole army must take them. -Bjorn the Fellhanded has AV14 on all sides, better stats. -There is some mad Wulfen character, who has his own personal drop pod. He can choose who he fights in combat, like a challenge in WFB. No-one else can fight him apart from the person he’s attacking, unless said model is killed, in which case his squad can then attack him. -All rules for Named Characters have been rebuffed – all of them can take terminator armour for +50 points. All Named Characters models are getting re-done, if not for the actual release then in subsequent releases. -Runic weapons I believe function as Relic blades, but with something else quite snazzy. -Wolf Guard (in terminator armour) with lightning claws rack up 6 attacks on the charge each. A very broken thing to do (think this ill be omitted from the final codex) is put them with Ragnar Blackmane, who gives them Fleet of foot and rending, though dont’ quote me on rending. -Individual Wolf Guard can replace squad leaders – all should look individual. -No model in the SW codex at all has the option to take a thunderhammer...

It’s like Tactics: A Profile in Sonic Bliss

A few years ago I started thinking about making another CSM army, at first I was drawn to Tzeench, because I thought AP 3 bolters of the Thousand Sons were killer. Then on a whim I put a squad of Noise Marines in a pick up game and fell in love. I became a firm believer more shots was better then fewer shots even with AP factored in. Thousand Sons seemed like a one trick pony. It was the flexibility of Noise Marines that was the deciding factor, so it was then I laid the ground work for a new army. When designing a Chaos Space Marine army around Slaanesh you have no choice, but to start with Noise Marines, then the sounds of anguish can truely flow. Let’s look the stat line of  Noise Marines. [TABLE=3] Two things can be gleaned by the Noise Marine profile, I5 and pts/model of 20. On paper they are cheapest of the Cult Marines. This brings us to the first dilemma, the upgrades Noise Marines have. The main option is the Sonic Blaster which is a 5 point upgrade for each Noise Marine, which instantly makes them the most expensive troop selection in the codex. Is it worth it? Sonic Blaster: range 24″ str 4, AP 5 Assault 2/Heavy 3 It is basically a super shooty bolter. The Sonic Blaster is important for three reasons. It allows you to shoot and assault in the same turn. It allows you to move and still fire at max range It allows you to stand and fire three...

Meat for Meta: Respect your elder.

Over at BoLS poster Bigred is retiring his old school IG army. Why would he do such a thing? Well he thinks his old models do not work anymore and he is getting tired of kids telling him that they are not GW. Which I think are two really stupid reasons to retire an army, especially one really rare and awesome. Warhammer 40k is all about history, using those old models represents your passion for the game. You played before their was the Internet, you played before the competitive scene, and you played before you knew how to paint any better. I understand Bigred will for change, but he does not have to completely disregard this entire army. If you look at his original post from 2007, it shows how he has updated the army over time. I really do not see what in 5th edition has made his army unplayable? Just because some units have been changed around does not mean they cannot be incorporated in a new way. His second point of having to tell noobs that his army is really GW is a pussy way out. New players should be looking up to Bigred, I know if I saw that army I would. I would want to know everything I can about that army, when were they made, how old they were, and how long did...

It’s like Tactics: The Introduction

In my travels across the Ocularis Terribus I have come across many wonderful things, from Bubonicus’s world and the dancing human chain to the Unfleshed of Medrengard. In my most recent trip though, I had the great pleasure of encountering a traveling band of Noise Marines. Allowed me to acquire a vast sum of sonic weapons, which I have started amassing an army around. For some background; I come from leading Death Guard, having gone to the Nurgle School for the Blighted, this will be a big change for me. I recently started taking classes in pain by numbers and auditory deafening, in the hopes of mastering the Noise Marines. I have already learned many things about Slanessh’s servants and I hope to pass my knowledge on to anyone that will listen. This will be begin a series in showcasing my adventures in playing the Noise Marines and Marked for Slaanesh. I am looking at a five part series, hoping to bring to life this army and what combinations are effective on the battlefield. Part 1: Overview of Noise Marines. Park 2: Kitting your Noise Marines. Part 3: What goes well with your Noise Marines. Part 4: What to Mark. Part 5: Sample Army Lists Watch Sidekicks movie online Download Lenny Bruce Swear to Tell the Truth movie Street Dreams movie...

Meat for Meta: Bell of Lost Tact

It really should not bug me, but it did. Over at the great Bell of Lost Souls is an Imperial Guard army list, using the new codex on their main page. Now Joe 40k six pack posting this list on a random forum is one thing, on BoLS it is another thing. What bothers me is BoLS is better then that. A whole lot of people have not read the codex, like Australia. BoLS comes off looking elitist. Its the kind of epeen waving that gets you caned in Singapore. The post started a circle jerk on the comments page. It was battle of those in the know and those not. Now you may be thinking I am just butt hurt; I am not one of the cool kids with the new codex. Well I have a copy and read it cover to cover (looks for a cane). Worse, the list posted is sad. JWolf simply got the dex and like a fat girl going on diet, picked five random things on the menu and then ordered a salad. Who the hell would take an allied Daemonhunter Inquisitor when you can get a Psychic Choir?!? At least make everything on the list from the codex. It could be said that JWolf made a list using the figures he had, but using BoLS space just to post a self gratifying...
